Highly Recommend!
I’m beyond thankful for Ramsey Law Group. Because of their amazing team, I recently received a settlement check I never thought I would see. They gave me the courage to pursue my case, diligently working to prepare for trial and keeping me informed every step of the way. Emiliano Farciert was very responsive, thorough, and encouraging. And while I hope I never have to be in another courtroom again, they are the people I would want in the room with me if I do!

Someone on my side
Mr Ramsey represented my family after my husband was fatally injured in an accident. My children and I had almost given up on finding any kind of help after the accident. Until John Ramsey called us back willing to help. He had no problem making the trip to Fort Worth and meeting with my family the next day. Not only was he a nice guy, He was very caring, clearly a family man. After 20 minutes taking to my family he had my little girl smiling, he made her feel like she was a big help in getting justice for her Daddy. He was there to help every step of the way. He did win our case that no one else would take. I can honestly say he earned the trust and respect of my family win or lose we knew we had someone on our side. He protected us from people, we didn't know not to trust. He provided the facts and helped us get our lives back. Mr Ramsey is more than a lawyer. A guardian angel to me, and a super hero to my kids. Thank you John Ramsey.

Forget everything you hear about Attorneys when working with John Ramsey
John Ramsey represented my Aunt who was in a car accident and walked away with permanent damage to her sight. Mr. Ramsey made sure she was taken care of. His communication and availability really impressed me especially when he stopped in to visit her for no other apparent reason than to see how she was doing. Where in this world are you going to find any professional that would do that? Absolutely can not say enough about him.

Tenacious and Fought Hard For Me
I had a work related issue and John helped me through the grueling task of continuing to work while engaging his service and undergoing medical issues all at the same time. He was patient, kind, and always asked me what I wanted to do and made suggestions along the way, making me feel empowered again to have choices. I couldn't have managed all of this without him. He was a true life saver for me.

Hard Time
At a hard time in My ex-wife and my life, when we had just loss our son due to the neglagence of an apartment complex, John came in and helped us understand what the law should have reqiured of the complex, and that it should have never happened. He also went out of his way to make sure we were able to make it to every appointment and meeting we had during the long course of the case. He also would sit there and talk to us about what we feel about what happen to our son, not just a lawyer but someone that truly care about how we feel not just what he need to know. Even after the case ended he keep in contact with us, and asked us if we need anything to contact him, he does not just make you feel like a client, he makes you feel like family. We felt like he was just working on our case, when we both knew he was handling lots of cases besides ours. So if i had to have a lawyer for anything, It would be him.
